Social Housing Conference

13 July 2022 - Manchester

In November 2020, the government published its long-awaited social housing white paper that promised to ensure that residents in social housing are safe, are listened to, live in good quality homes, and have access to redress when things go wrong – but has the vision for large scale improvements been met?

Following the pandemic in February 2022, the government published its Levelling Up white paper that sets out how we will spread opportunity more equally across the UK which includes driving the housing quality of existing homes to ensure they are fit for the 21st century and building more housing in England, including more affordable social housing.
Landmark changes have been made including a more proactive approach to making landlords accountable by measuring their repair work, building safety, effective complaints handling, helpful tenant engagement, and responsible neighbourhood management.

Can more be done to improve the lives of tenants? With 1 in 5 people living in fuel poverty, a total of over 3 million UK homes, how are we addressing such important issues? Will technology pave the way for radical holistic improvements or is it simply a matter of increased funding?

Join Salford Professional Development for the seventh Social Housing Conference, where industry experts will come together to discuss the levelling-up agenda and its implications, the importance of Together with Tenants, the role social housing plays in partnership with individuals, communities, and local authorities, in the delivery of more affordable housing and ending homelessness. This one-day event is filled with useful case studies, practical advice, methods of improving customer experience, as well as an opportunity to discuss your challenges and ask questions to our panel of experienced speakers.
